    Chemung Financial Corporation Reports First Quarter 2021 Net Income of $6.5 million, or $1.39 per Share

    ELMIRA, N.Y., April 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chemung Financial Corporation (the “Corporation”) (Nasdaq: CHMG), the parent company of Chemung Canal Trust Company (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $6.5 million, or $1.39 per share, for the first quarter of 2021, compared to $2.5 million, or $0.51 per share, for the first quarter of 2020. "I am pleased to report earnings of $6.5 million, or $1.39 per share, for the first quarter of 2021, the second highest in the near 188-year history of our Company," according to Anders M. Tomson, President and CEO of Chemung Financial Corporation. "We began the year continuing to support our customers as the next phase of the Paycheck Protection Program launched early in the quarter, and, we assisted with the forgiveness process for others. Additionally we facilitated the dispersal of over 20,000 Economic Impact Payment checks, representing $46.2 million, across our footprint. Our continued focus on expense management improved our efficiency and non-interest expense to average-assets ratios, compared to last quarter. We are also excited for the opportunities that lie ahead in our move to Western New York, as we already have a strong pipeline of lending activity in the region. We look toward the remainder of 2021 with optimism, and we will remain a strong partner and resource for our customers and communities," Tomson added. First Quarter Highlights1: First quarter earnings per share grew to $1.39 per share versus the prior quarter, ending December 31, 2020, of $1.11 per share. The Corporation recorded the second highest earnings per share in its 188 year history.Efficiency ratio (unadjusted)2 decreased from 69.72% in the fourth quarter of 2020, to 62.38% in the first quarter of 2021. Non-interest expense to average assets decreased 46 basis points in the first quarter of 2021.The total provision for loan losses was a credit of $0.3 million primarily due to a settlement received related to a previously charged-off commercial credit.Loans, net of deferred fees, increased $44.5 million, including $35.2 million due to Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loans, or 2.90% from December 31, 2020.Non-performing loans decreased from $10.0 million as of December 31, 2020 to $9.3 million as of March 31, 2021, representing 0.59% of total loans.799 applications have been processed for the second phase of PPP as of April 21, 2021, totaling $75.1 million in loans.The Corporation has received approval from both the New York State Department of Financial Services and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to open a full-service branch at its new location at 9159 Main Street, Clarence, New York, from which it is currently operating as a Loan Production Office. 1 Balance sheet comparisons are calculated as of March 31, 2021 versus December 31, 2020.2 See GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations, included within. 1st Quarter 2021 vs 1st Quarter 2020 Net Interest Income: Net interest income for the current quarter totaled $15.8 million compared to $15.1 million for the same period in the prior year, an increase of $0.7 million, or 4.8%, due primarily to increases of $0.4 million in interest income on loans, including fees, and $0.3 million in interest and dividend income on taxable securities, and a decrease of $0.4 million in total interest expense, offset by a decrease of $0.3 million in interest income on interest-earning deposits. The increase in interest income on loans was due primarily to an increase of $0.6 million in interest income on commercial loans primarily attributable to a $222.0 million increase in average balances on commercial loans and the recognition of $1.1 million of PPP loan fees, partially offset by a decrease in commercial portfolio average yield due to a decrease in interest rates. Interest income on mortgage loans increased $0.3 million primarily due to an increase of $50.5 million in average balances on mortgage loans, partially offset by a decrease in average portfolio yield due to a decrease in interest rates. These increases were offset by a decrease of $0.5 million in interest income on consumer loans which can be attributed to both decreases in average balances and average portfolio yield on consumer loans. The increase in interest and dividend income on taxable securities was due primarily to an increase in average invested balances of $286.4 million. The decrease in interest income on interest-earning deposits was due primarily to the sharp drop in interest rates on overnight deposits with the average yield on interest-earning deposits declining from 1.44% in the first quarter of 2020 to 0.21% in the first quarter of 2021. The decrease in interest expense on deposits was due primarily to decreases in interest rates paid on interest-bearing checking, savings and money market products. Fully taxable equivalent net interest margin was 2.86% for the first quarter 2021, compared to 3.55% for the same period in the prior year. Average interest-earning assets increased $535.8 million as of March 31, 2021 compared to the same period in the prior year. The average yield on interest-earning assets decreased 83 basis points in the first quarter of 2021, while the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased 21 basis points, as compared to the same period in the prior year. Non-Interest Income: Non-interest income for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $5.6 million compared to $4.7 million for the same period in the prior year, an increase of $0.9 million, or 18.8%. The increase was due primarily to increases of $0.4 million in wealth management group fee income, $0.3 million in change in fair value of equity investments, $0.2 million in net gains on sales of residential mortgage loans sold into the secondary market, and $0.2 million in interchange revenue from debit card transactions, offset by a decrease of $0.3 million in service charges on deposit accounts primarily attributable to a decrease in NSF and overdraft fees as compared to the same period in the prior year. Non-Interest Expense: Non-interest expense for the current quarter was $13.4 million compared to $13.7 million for the same period in the prior year, a decrease of $0.3 million, or 2.9%. The decrease can be mostly attributed to decreased spending in most categories due to continued expense management when compared to the same period in the prior year. FDIC insurance increased $0.1 million primarily due to an increase in the assessment base due to increased average asset balances. Income Tax Expense: Income tax expense for the current quarter was $1.8 million compared to $0.5 million for the same period in the prior year, an increase of $1.3 million. The effective tax rate for the current quarter increased to 21.4% compared to 16.8% for the same period in the prior year. The increase in income tax expense was primarily due to an increase in pretax income. 1st Quarter 2021 vs 4th Quarter 2020 Net Interest Income: Net interest income for the current quarter totaled $15.8 million compared to $16.4 million for the prior quarter, a decrease of $0.6 million, or 3.7%, due primarily to a decrease of $0.7 million in interest income and fees from loans, offset by an increase of $0.2 million in interest and dividend income on taxable securities. The decrease in interest income and fees from loans was primarily attributed to a $0.5 million decrease in recognition of PPP fees in the first quarter of 2021. The Corporation recorded $1.1 million of PPP fees in the first quarter of 2021, of which $0.5 million represented accelerated recognition of fees related to SBA loan forgiveness of $34.1 million in loan balances. In the fourth quarter of 2020, $1.6 million of PPP fees were recorded, of which $0.7 million represented accelerated recognition of fees related to SBA loan forgiveness of $39.0 million in loan balances. The increase in interest and dividend income on taxable securities can be primarily attributed to an increase in average invested balances of $118.2 million in the first quarter of 2021. Fully taxable equivalent net interest margin was 2.86% in the current quarter compared to 3.06% in the prior quarter. Average interest-earning assets increased $106.4 million in the current quarter compared to the prior quarter, while the average yield on interest-earning assets decreased 20 basis points from 3.23% in the prior quarter to 3.03% in the current quarter. The Corporation continues to closely monitor the loan portfolio for effects related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Changes in governmental policies during the pandemic placed stress on certain industries while other industries initially anticipated to be highly impacted by the pandemic demonstrated resilience. As a result, the Corporation continues to re-evaluate various qualitative factors used to calculate the provision. As of March 31, 2021, a $4.0 million pandemic related provision remains as part of the allowance, unchanged from December 31, 2020. A release of provision totaling $0.3 million occurred in the current quarter compared to provision expense of $0.3 million for the prior quarter, a decrease of $0.6 million. Non-Interest Income: Non-interest income for the current quarter was $5.6 million compared to $6.0 million for the prior quarter, a decrease of $0.4 million, or 5.9%. The decrease is mostly attributed to decreases of $0.5 million in net gains on sales of loans held for sale, and $0.1 million in service charges on deposit accounts, offset by an increase of $0.2 million in Wealth Management Group fee income. The decrease in net gains on sales of loans held for sale was primarily due to a decrease in residential mortgage loans sold into the secondary market compared to the prior quarter. The fourth quarter of 2020 also included a $0.2 million in net gains on the sale of four commercial loans, three of which were non-performing. The decrease in service charges on deposit accounts was primarily attributed to a decrease in NSF and overdraft fees. The increase in wealth management group fee income was primarily attributed to an increase in market value of assets under management. Non-Interest Expense: Non-interest expense for the current quarter was $13.4 million compared to $15.6 million for the prior quarter, a decrease of $2.2 million, or 14.4%. The decrease can be mostly attributed to decreases of $1.3 million in other non-interest expense and $0.8 million in salaries and wage expense. The decrease in other non-interest expense was primarily attributed to the establishment of a $0.7 million reserve for unresolved compliance matters, a $0.4 million charge related to the termination of a lease, and $0.2 million in charitable contribution expense in the fourth quarter of 2020. The decrease in salaries and wage expense was primarily attributed to annual merit increases and an increase in commission and reward expenses in the fourth quarter of 2020. Income Tax Expense: Income tax expense for the current quarter was $1.8 million compared to $1.3 million for the prior quarter, an increase of $0.5 million in income tax expense. The effective tax rate for the current quarter increased to 21.4% compared to 19.8% in the prior period. Asset Quality Non-performing loans totaled $9.3 million at March 31, 2021, or 0.59% of total loans, compared to $10.0 million at December 31, 2020, or 0.65% of total loans. Non-performing assets, which are comprised of non-performing loans and other real estate owned, were $9.4 million, or 0.39% of total assets, at March 31, 2021, compared to $10.2 million, or 0.45% of total assets, at December 31, 2020. The decrease in non-performing loans can mostly be attributed to payments received on non-performing residential and indirect loans partially offset by additional commercial and indirect consumer non-performing loans. The decrease in non-performing assets can be primarily attributed to the decrease in non- performing loans. Management performs an ongoing assessment of the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses based upon a number of factors including an analysis of historical loss factors, collateral evaluations, recent charge-off experience, credit quality of the loan portfolio, current economic conditions and loan growth. Management continues to evaluate the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as it relates to the loan portfolio. As part of this analysis, management identified what it believes to be higher risk loans through a detailed analysis of industry codes. During 2020, management increased certain allowance qualitative factors based on its assessment of the impact of the current pandemic on local, national, and global economic conditions as well as the perceived risks inherent in specific industries and credit characteristics. Based on this approach, the Corporation determined that no further adjustment was necessary related to the COVID-19 pandemic specific provision for the first quarter of 2021. The total provision for loan losses was a credit of $0.3 million primarily due to favorable recovery experience during the first quarter of 2021. Net recoveries for the first quarter of 2021 were $0.2 million, compared to net charge-offs of $3.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. The allowance for loan losses was $20.9 million at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020. The allowance for loan losses was 224.19% of non-performing loans at March 31, 2021 compared to 210.25% at December 31, 2020. The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans was 1.32% at March 31, 2021 compared to 1.36% at December 31, 2020. The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans excluding PPP loans was 1.50% at March 31, 2021. The Corporation continues to closely monitor the loan portfolio for effects related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Changes in governmental policies during the pandemic placed stress on certain industries while other industries initially anticipated to be highly impacted by the pandemic demonstrated resilience. Based upon management review of these factors, the pandemic-related portion of the allowance remains at $4.0 million as of March, 31, 2021. Under Section 4013 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the "CARES Act"), "Temporary Relief from Troubled Debt Restructurings" loans less than 30 days past due as of December 31, 2019 will be considered current for COVID-19 related modifications and therefore will not be treated as TDRs. On June 17, 2020 the New York legislature passed, and Governor Cuomo signed, legislation which allows certain borrowers to extend the period of forbearance on a primary residence if financial hardship is demonstrated as a result of COVID-19. At its highest point as of May 31, 2020, total loan forbearances represented 15.77% of the Corporation's total loan portfolio. As of March 31, 2021, total loan forbearances represent 1.66% of the total loan portfolio. COVID-19 Loan Modifications Outstanding As Of June 30, 2020September 30, 2020December 31, 2020March 31, 2021 #ClientsTotal Loan Balance#ClientsTotal Loan Balance#ClientsTotal Loan Balance#ClientsTotal Loan BalanceCommercial172$167.7 million31$43.3 million13$19.8 million22$25.2 millionRetail and Residential457$18.0 million43$2.5 million18$1.0 million16$1.1 million The above reflects the uncertain economic situation whereby the initial response by customers prompted a quick reaction to the unknown potential impact of COVID-19 on their business. Subsequently, customers may have reassessed their financial position prior to finalization of a modification, either modifying deferral requests or withdrawing the request altogether. In some cases, customers continued to make payments on modified loans. Balance Sheet Activity Total assets were $2.442 billion at March 31, 2021 compared to $2.279 billion at December 31, 2020, an increase of $163.0 million, or 7.2%. The increase can be mostly attributed to increases of $71.6 million in securities available for sale, at estimated fair value, $44.5 million in loans, net of deferred fees, and $48.5 million in total cash and cash equivalents. The increase in securities available for sale can be mostly attributed to purchases of $125.1 million, offset by a decrease of $39.0 million in paydowns, and a decrease in the value of the portfolio of $13.6 million due to increases in interest rates. The increase in loans, net of deferred loan fees, was due primarily to the growth of $42.6 million in commercial loans and $5.8 million in residential mortgages, offset by a decrease of $4.0 million in consumer loans. $35.2 million of the increase in loans is related to PPP and comprised of $69.4 million of phase two loans originated and $34.2 million of phase one loans repaid. The increase in cash and cash equivalents was primarily due to changes in deposits, securities, and loans. Total liabilities were $2.248 billion at March 31, 2021 compared to $2.080 billion at December 31, 2020, an increase of $168.0 million, or 8.1%. The increase in total liabilities can primarily be attributed to an increase of $172.6 million, or 8.5% in deposits, offset by a decrease of $4.8 million in other liabilities. The increase in deposits was due primarily to increases of $51.6 million in consumer deposits, $42.7 million in commercial deposits, and $78.2 million in public deposits. The increase in deposits was partially attributed to the collection of stimulus checks and PPP loan disbursements. The decrease in other liabilities was due primarily to a decrease of $4.1 million in interest rate swap liabilities. Total shareholders’ equity was $194.8 million at March 31, 2021 compared to $199.7 million at December 31, 2020, a decrease of $4.9 million, or 2.5%. The decrease in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) of $10.2 million can mostly be attributed to a decrease in the fair market value of the securities portfolio. The increase in retained earnings of $5.3 million was due primarily to net income of $6.5 million offset by $1.2 million in dividends declared. Treasury stock increased $0.3 million primarily due to the Corporation's common stock repurchase program, offset by the impact of the issuance of shares related to the Corporation's employee benefit plans and directors' stock plans. As of March 31, 2021, a total of 20,625 shares have been repurchased at an average cost of $34.98 per share. The total equity to total assets ratio was 7.97% at March 31, 2021 compared to 8.76% at December 31, 2020. The tangible equity to tangible assets ratio was 7.14% at March 31, 2021 compared to 7.87% at December 31, 2020. Book value per share decreased to $41.60 at March 31, 2021 from $42.53 at December 31, 2020. As of March 31, 2021, the Bank’s capital ratios were in excess of those required to be considered well-capitalized under the regulatory framework for prompt corrective action. Other Items The market value of total assets under management or administration in our Wealth Management Group was $2.111 billion at March 31, 2021, including $277.4 million of assets under management or administration for the Corporation, compared to $2.091 billion at December 31, 2020, including $305.5 million of assets under management or administration for the Corporation, an increase of $20.0 million, or 0.97%. The decrease in total assets under management or administration for the Corporation can be mostly attributed to an increase in paydowns and a decrease in market value of the assets under management. As previously announced on January 8, 2021, the Corporation announced that the Board of Directors approved a new stock repurchase program. Under the new repurchase program, the Corporation may repurchase up to 250,000 shares of its common stock, or approximately 5% of its then outstanding shares. The repurchase program permits shares to be repurchased in open market or privately negotiated transactions, through block trades, and pursuant to any trading plan that may be adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities and Exchange Commission. As of March 31, 2021, a total of 20,625 shares of common stock at a total cost of $0.7 million were repurchased by the Corporation under its share repurchase program. The weighted average cost was $34.98 per share repurchased. Remaining buyback authority under the share repurchase program was 229,375 shares at March 31, 2021. The Corporation has received approval from the New York State Department of Financial Services and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to open a full-service branch at its new location at 9159 Main Street, Clarence, New York, from which it is currently operating as a Loan Production Office. Chemung Financial's COVID-19 Pandemic Update The Corporation continues to maintain COVID-19 protocols throughout its footprint, ensuring a healthy and safe work environment for our colleagues, clients and the communities we assist, including social distancing, sanitizing and facial coverings at all times. At the date of this press release all of our offices are open normal business hours with the exception of two branches which are limited to drive-through service only. Efforts to assist our customer base through the Forgiveness phase of the Small Business Administration's (SBA's) first phase of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) continue. The Corporation began accepting applications for the latest round of PPP on January 19, 2021, and has received a total of 799 applications for a total of $75.1 million, as of the date of this press release. Management believes that the Corporation's liquidity position is strong. The Corporation uses a variety of resources to meet its liquidity needs. These include short term investments, cash flow from lending and investing activities, core- deposit growth and non-core funding sources, such as time deposits of $100,000 or more, FHLB advances, securities sold under agreements to repurchase, and other borrowings. As of March 31, 2021, the Corporation's cash and cash equivalents balance was $157.0 million. The Corporation also maintains an investment portfolio of securities available for sale, comprised primarily of mortgage-backed securities and municipal bonds. Although this portfolio generates interest income for the Corporation, it also serves as an available source of liquidity and capital if the need should arise. As of March 31, 2021, the Corporation's investment in securities available for sale was $626.2 million, $463.6 million of which was not pledged as collateral. Additionally, the Bank's unused borrowing capacity at the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York was $81.2 million, as of March 31, 2021. The Corporation did not experience excessive draws on available working capital lines of credit and home equity lines of credit during first quarter 2021 due to the COVID-19 crisis, nor has the Corporation experienced any significant or unusual activity related to customer reaction to the COVID-19 crisis that would create stress on the Corporation's liquidity position. With respect to the Corporation's credit risk and lending activities, management has taken actions to identify and assess additional possible credit exposure due to the changing environment caused by the COVID-19 crisis based upon the industry types within our current loan portfolio. Lending risks, as mentioned, are being monitored by industry, based upon NAICS code, with specific attention being paid to those industries that may experience greater stress during this time. The COVID-19 crisis is expected to continue to impact the Corporation's financial results, as well as demand for its services and products during 2021. The short and long-term implications of the COVID-19 crisis, and related monetary and fiscal stimulus measures on the Corporation's future revenues, earnings results, allowance for loan losses, capital reserves, and liquidity are uncertain at this time.

Chemung Financial Corporation GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations (Unaudited) The Corporation prepares its Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with GAAP. See the Corporation’s unaudited consolidated balance sheets and statements of income contained within this press release. That presentation provides the reader with an understanding of the Corporation’s results that can be tracked consistently from period-to-period and enables a comparison of the Corporation’s performance with other companies’ GAAP financial statements. In addition to analyzing the Corporation’s results on a reported basis, management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures, because it believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide information to investors about the underlying operational performance and trends of the Corporation and, therefore, facilitate a comparison of the Corporation with the performance of its competitors. Non-GAAP financial measures used by the Corporation may not be comparable to similarly named non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The SEC has adopted Regulation G, which applies to all public disclosures, including earnings releases, made by registered companies that contain “non-GAAP financial measures.” Under Regulation G, companies making public disclosures containing non-GAAP financial measures must also disclose, along with each non-GAAP financial measure, certain additional information, including a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the closest comparable GAAP financial measure and a statement of the Corporation’s reasons for utilizing the non-GAAP financial measure as part of its financial disclosures. The SEC has exempted from the definition of “non-GAAP financial measures” certain commonly used financial measures that are not based on GAAP. When these exempted measures are included in public disclosures, supplemental information is not required. The following measures used in this Report, which are commonly utilized by financial institutions, have not been specifically exempted by the SEC and may constitute "non-GAAP financial measures" within the meaning of the SEC's rules, although we are unable to state with certainty that the SEC would so regard them. Fully Taxable Equivalent Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin Net interest income is commonly presented on a tax-equivalent basis. That is, to the extent that some component of the institution's net interest income, which is presented on a before-tax basis, is exempt from taxation (e.g., is received by the institution as a result of its holdings of state or municipal obligations), an amount equal to the tax benefit derived from that component is added to the actual before-tax net interest income total. This adjustment is considered helpful in comparing one financial institution's net interest income to that of other institutions or in analyzing any institution’s net interest income trend line over time, to correct any analytical distortion that might otherwise arise from the fact that financial institutions vary widely in the proportions of their portfolios that are invested in tax-exempt securities, and that even a single institution may significantly alter over time the proportion of its own portfolio that is invested in tax-exempt obligations. Moreover, net interest income is itself a component of a second financial measure commonly used by financial institutions, net interest margin, which is the ratio of net interest income to average interest-earning assets. For purposes of this measure as well, fully taxable equivalent net interest income is generally used by financial institutions, as opposed to actual net interest income, again to provide a better basis of comparison from institution to institution and to better demonstrate a single institution’s performance over time. The Corporation follows these practices.

The adjusted efficiency ratio is a non-GAAP financial measure which represents the Corporation’s ability to turn resources into revenue and is calculated as non-interest expense divided by total revenue (fully taxable equivalent net interest income and non-interest income), adjusted for one-time occurrences and amortization. This measure is meaningful to the Corporation, as well as investors and analysts, in assessing the Corporation’s productivity measured by the amount of revenue generated for each dollar spent.

    Chemung Financial Corporation Reports Annual Net Income of $19.3 million, or $4.01 per Share, and Fourth Quarter 2020 Net Income of $5.2 million, or $1.11 per Share

    ELMIRA, N.Y., Jan. 22, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chemung Financial Corporation (the “Corporation”) (Nasdaq: CHMG), the parent company of Chemung Canal Trust Company (the “Bank”), today reported net income of $19.3 million, or $4.01 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to $15.6 million, or $3.21 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2019. Net income was $5.2 million, or $1.11 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to $4.2 million, or $0.87 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2019. "The year 2020 was certainly an extraordinary and challenging year for our employees, our communities and our country. COVID-19 fundamentally altered both business and social practices across the globe, and we reacted and adapted quickly. Although the coronavirus altered how our Company conducted business, we were confident that our strong financial position, our community focus and our strong culture would help us through the difficult times. Due to the hard work of so many, I am proud to report earnings of $1.11 per share for the fourth quarter of 2020, and $4.01 per share for the fiscal year 2020," said Anders M. Tomson, President and CEO of Chemung Canal Trust Company. “As we look to 2021, our business, along with so many others, will remain disrupted by the pandemic. We are once again supporting local businesses through our continued participation in the Paycheck Protection Program, and we look ahead with optimism as we enter the Western New York market and continue to focus on expense management and non-interest income opportunities,” Tomson added. Fourth Quarter Highlights1: Fourth quarter earnings per share grew to $1.11 per share as of December 31, 2020 versus $0.87 per share as of December 31, 2019Total shareholders’ equity increased $17.1 million, or 9.35% from December 31, 2019Tangible book value per share increased from $32.74 to $37.83, or 15.5% from December 31, 2019 2Loans, net of deferred fees, increased $227.2 million, including $150.9 million of Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loans, or 17.36% from December 31, 2019Non-performing loans decreased from $18.0 million as of December 31, 2019 to $10.0 million as of December 31, 2020, 0.65% of total loans. 1 Balance sheet comparisons are calculated as of December 31, 2020 versus December 31, 2019.2 See GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations, included within. 2020 vs 2019 Net Interest Income:Net interest income for the year ended December 31, 2020 totaled $62.9 million compared with $60.6 million for the prior year, an increase of $2.3 million, or 3.8%. The increase was primarily due to increases of $0.8 million in interest income on loans, including fees, and $0.7 million in interest and dividend income on taxable securities, and a decrease of $2.3 million in total interest expense, offset by a decrease of $1.5 million in interest income on interest-earning deposits. The increase in interest income on loans was due primarily to an increase of $1.7 million in interest income on commercial loans primarily attributable to a $157.8 million increase in average balances on commercial loans and the recognition of $3.8 million of PPP loan fees, partially offset by a decrease in average commercial portfolio yield due to a decrease in interest rates. Interest income on mortgage loans increased $0.9 million primarily due to an increase of $28.2 million in average balances on mortgage loans, partially offset by a decrease in average portfolio yield due to a decrease in interest rates. These increases were offset by a decrease of $1.8 million in interest income on consumer loans which can be attributed to both decreases in average balances and average portfolio yield on consumer loans. The increase in interest and dividend income on taxable securities was due primarily to an increase in average invested balances of $77.7 million, partially offset by a decrease in average interest rates. The decrease in interest on interest-earning deposits was due primarily to the sharp drop in interest rates on overnight deposits with the average yield on interest-earning deposits declining from 2.26% in 2019 to 0.54% in 2020, offset by a $38.9 million increase in average balances on interest-earning deposits. The decrease in interest expense on deposits was due primarily to the decreases in average rates paid on interest-bearing checking, savings and money market products in response to the Federal Reserve's 50 and 100 basis points drop on overnight rates in March, 2020. Fully taxable equivalent net interest margin was 3.25% for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared with 3.64% for the prior year. Average interest-earning assets increased $270.4 million in 2020 compared to the prior year. The average yield on interest- earning assets decreased 56 basis points while the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased 25 basis points in 2020 when compared to the prior year. Provisions for loan losses for the year ended December 31, 2020 totaled $4.2 million compared with $5.9 million for the prior year, a decrease of $1.7 million, or 28.8%. The decrease in provision for loan losses in 2020 was primarily due to a specific impairment of $4.2 million related to a participation interest in a commercial credit in the prior year. The Corporation is closely monitoring the loan portfolio for effects related to COVID-19. In 2020, the Company increased the allowance by $4.5 million for future estimated credit losses related to the COVID-19 pandemic, of which $4.0 million remains part of the allowance at year end. Non-Interest Income:Non-interest income for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $21.1 million compared with $20.1 million for the prior year, an increase of $1.1 million, or 5.2%. The increase was due primarily to increases of $1.5 million in net gains on sales of residential mortgage loans sold into the secondary market, $0.2 million in net gains on the sale of four commercial loans, three of which were non-performing, $0.4 million in interest rate swap fees earned, and a $0.6 million credit adjustment to Chemung Risk Management loss reserves, offset by a decrease of $1.3 million in service charges on deposit accounts primarily attributable to a decrease in NSF and overdraft fees as compared to the prior year. Non-Interest Expense:Non-interest expense for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $55.9 million compared with $55.7 million in the prior year, an increase of $0.2 million, or 0.4%. The increase was due primarily to increases of $0.8 million in salaries and wage expense, $0.5 million in FDIC insurance expense, and $0.4 million in loan expenses, offset by decreased spending across most other categories, including $0.4 million in furniture and equipment expenses, $0.3 million in marketing and advertising expenses, and $0.3 million in pension and other employee benefits, and a $0.5 million increase in the credit related to the net periodic pension and post- retirement benefits. The increase in salaries and wage expense was primarily attributed to annual merit increases and an increase in commission and reward expenses. The increase in FDIC insurance expense was primarily attributed to the receipt of a $0.4 million credit in 2019 related to the Deposit Insurance Fund's (DIF) minimum reserve ratio assessment. The increase in loan expenses was primarily attributed to legal fees associated with a legal action taken by the Corporation related to the $4.2 million impairment of a commercial credit disclosed in the Corporations' Current Report on Form 8-K, dated September 12, 2019, and an increase in loan volume during 2020 when compared to the prior year. The decrease in furniture and equipment expenses was primarily attributed to normal depreciation and a reduction in one-time service contract expenditures. The decrease in marketing and advertising expenses was primarily attributed to the cancellation of directed marketing initiatives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The decrease in pension and other employee benefits in 2020 was primarily attributed to a decrease in healthcare expenses when compared to the prior year. The increase in the credit related to the net periodic pension and post-retirement benefits was primarily due to a change in factors used to prepare annual actuarial estimates. Income Tax Expense:Income tax expense for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $4.6 million compared with $3.4 million for the prior year, an increase of $1.2 million in income tax expense. The effective tax rate for the year ended December 31, 2020 increased to 19.3% compared to 18.0% for the prior year. The increase in income tax expense was primarily due to an increase in pretax income. 4th Quarter 2020 vs 4th Quarter 2019 Net Interest Income: Net interest income for the current quarter totaled $16.4 million compared to $15.2 million for the same period in the prior year, an increase of $1.2 million, or 7.9%, due primarily to increases of $0.8 million in interest income on loans, including fees, and $0.2 million in interest and dividend income on taxable securities, and a decrease of $0.6 million in total interest expense, offset by a decrease of $0.4 million in interest income on interest-earning deposits. The increase in interest income on loans was due primarily to an increase of $0.9 million in interest income on commercial loans primarily attributable to a $219.2 million increase in average balances on commercial loans and the recognition of $1.6 million of PPP loan fees, partially offset by a decrease in commercial portfolio average yield due to a decrease in interest rates. Interest income on mortgage loans increased $0.3 million primarily due to an increase of $49.7 million in average balances on mortgage loans, partially offset by a decrease in average portfolio yield due to a decrease in interest rates. These increases were also offset by a decrease of $0.5 million in interest income on consumer loans which can be attributed to both decreases in average balances and average portfolio yield on consumer loans. The increase in interest and dividend income on taxable securities was due primarily to an increase in average invested balances of $177.0 million. The decrease in interest income on interest-earning deposits was due primarily to the sharp drop in interest rates on overnight deposits with the average yield on interest-earning deposits declining from 1.84% in the fourth quarter of 2019 to 0.31% in the fourth quarter of 2020. The decrease in interest expense on deposits was due primarily to the decreases in average rates paid on interest-bearing checking, savings and money market products in response to the Federal Reserve's 50 and 100 basis points drop on overnight rates in March, 2020. Fully taxable equivalent net interest margin was 3.06% for the fourth quarter 2020, compared to 3.56% for the same period in the prior year. Average interest-earning assets increased $439.1 million in the fourth quarter 2020 compared to the same period in the prior year. The average yield on interest-earning assets decreased 69 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2020, while the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities decreased 29 basis points, as compared to the same period in the prior year. Non-Interest Income: Non-interest income for the current quarter was $6.0 million compared to $5.1 million for the same period in the prior year, an increase of $0.9 million, or 17.0%. The increase was due primarily to increases of $0.5 million in net gains on sales of residential mortgage loans sold into the secondary market, $0.2 million in net gains on the sale of four commercial loans, three of which were non-performing, $0.1 million in change in fair value of equity investments, and $0.1 million in wealth management group fee income, offset by a decrease of $0.3 million in service charges on deposit accounts primarily attributable to a decrease in NSF and overdraft fees as compared to the same period in the prior year. Non-Interest Expense: Non-interest expense for the current quarter was $15.6 million compared to $14.9 million for the same period in the prior year, an increase of $0.7 million, or 5.0%. The increase can be mostly attributed to the establishment of a $0.7 million reserve for unresolved compliance matters, increases of $0.5 million in salaries and wage expense, and $0.2 million in FDIC insurance expense. These increases were offset by decreases of $0.3 million in professional services, $0.2 million in marketing and advertising expenses, and $0.2 million in furniture and equipment expenses. The increase in salaries and wage expense was primarily attributed to annual merit awards and commission and reward expenses. The increase in FDIC insurance was primarily due to the receipt of a $0.2 million credit in the fourth quarter of the prior year related to the Deposit Insurance Fund's (DIF) minimum reserve ratio assessment. The decrease in professional services was primarily due to the timing of various projects. The decrease in marketing and advertising expenses was primarily attributed to the cancellation of directed marketing initiatives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Income Tax Expense: Income tax expense for the current quarter was $1.3 million compared to $1.0 million for the same period in the prior year, an increase of $0.3 million. The effective tax rate for the current quarter increased to 19.8% compared to 19.1% for the same period in the prior year. The increase in income tax expense was primarily due to an increase in pretax income. 4th Quarter 2020 vs 3rd Quarter 2020 Net Interest Income: Net interest income for the current quarter totaled $16.4 million compared to $15.9 million for the prior quarter, an increase of $0.5 million, or 3.3%, due primarily to increases of $0.4 million in interest income and fees from loans, and $0.2 million in interest and dividend income on taxable securities, offset by a $0.1 million increase in interest expense on deposits. The increase in interest income and fees from loans was primarily attributed to a $24.9 million increase in average loan balances in the fourth quarter. Also in the fourth quarter, the Corporation recorded $1.6 million in PPP fees, $0.7 million of which represented accelerated recognition of fees related to SBA loan forgiveness of $39.0 million in loan balances. This $1.6 million in fees represents a $0.4 million increase over the third quarter 2020. The increase in interest and dividend income on taxable securities can be primarily attributed to an increase in average invested balances of $118.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Fully taxable equivalent net interest margin was 3.06% in the current quarter compared to 3.20% in the prior quarter. Average interest-earning assets increased $158.8 million in the current quarter as compared to the prior quarter, while the average yield on interest-earning assets decreased 14 basis points from 3.37% in the prior quarter to 3.23% in the current quarter. The average cost of interest-bearing liabilities remained the same in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to the prior quarter. The Corporation continues to closely monitor the loan portfolio for effects related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Changes in governmental policies during the pandemic placed stress on certain industries while other industries initially anticipated to be highly impacted by the pandemic demonstrated resilience. As a result, the Corporation re-evaluated various qualitative factors used to calculate the provision. In addition the Corporation charged off one large commercial mortgage and one participating interest in a commercial credit. In 2020, the Company increased the allowance by $4.5 million for future estimated credit losses related to the COVID-19 pandemic, of which $4.0 million remains part of the allowance at year end. In the fourth quarter of 2020, the Corporation sold and released reserves for three non-performing commercial loans. Provision for loan losses for the current quarter totaled $0.3 million compared to $0.7 million for the prior quarter, a decrease of $0.4 million. Non-Interest Income: Non-interest income for the current quarter was $6.0 million compared to $5.3 million for the prior quarter, an increase of $0.7 million, or 11.9%. The increase can mostly be attributed to increases of $0.1 million in net gains on sales of residential mortgage loans sold into the secondary market, $0.2 million in net gains on the sale of four commercial loans, three of which were non-performing, $0.1 million in Wealth Management Group fee income, and $0.1 million in service charges on deposit accounts. The increase in net gains on sales of loans held for sale was primarily due to an increase in residential mortgage loans originated and sold into the secondary market. The increase in Wealth Management Group fee income was primarily attributed to an increase in market value of assets under management and additional fee income from terminating trusts. The increase in service charges on deposit accounts was primarily attributed to an increase in NSF and overdraft fees. Non-Interest Expense: Non-interest expense for the current quarter was $15.6 million compared to $13.4 million for the prior quarter, an increase of $2.2 million, or 16.7%. The increase can be mostly attributed to increases of $1.4 million in other non-interest expense, $0.5 million in salaries and wage expense, $0.2 million in pension and other employee benefits, and $0.2 million in data processing expenses. The increase in other non-interest expense was primarily attributed to the establishment of a $0.7 million reserve for unresolved compliance matters, and increases of $0.4 million related to the termination of the lease of the now closed Owego, New York branch, and $0.2 million in charitable contributions. The increase in salaries and wage expense was primarily attributed to annual merit increases and an increase in commission and reward expenses. The increase in pension and other employee benefits was primarily attributed to the recapture of $0.2 million in health insurance expense in the third quarter. The increase in data processing expenses was primarily attributed to timing of various projects. Income Tax Expense: Income tax expense for the current quarter was $1.3 million compared to $1.5 million for the prior quarter, a decrease of $0.2 million in income tax expense. The effective tax rate for the current quarter decreased to 19.8% compared to 20.3% in the prior period. Asset Quality Non-performing loans totaled $10.0 million at December 31, 2020, or 0.65% of total loans, compared to $18.0 million at December 31, 2019, or 1.38% of total loans. Non-performing assets, which are comprised of non-performing loans and other real estate owned, were $10.2 million, or 0.45% of total assets, at December 31, 2020, compared to $18.5 million, or 1.04% of total assets, at December 31, 2019. The decrease in non-performing loans can mostly be attributed to the charge off of one large commercial mortgage in the second quarter of 2020, and one participating interest in a commercial credit in the fourth quarter of 2020. In the fourth quarter of 2020, the Corporation sold four commercial loans with total balances of $4.9 million, three of which were non-performing with total balances of $3.8 million. The decrease in non- performing assets can be attributed to the decrease in non-performing loans. Management performs an ongoing assessment of the adequacy of the allowance for loan losses based upon a number of factors including an analysis of historical loss factors, collateral evaluations, recent charge-off experience, credit quality of the loan portfolio, current economic conditions and loan growth. Management continues to evaluate the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as it relates to the loan portfolio. As part of this analysis, management identified what it believes to be higher risk loans through a detailed analysis of industry codes. Management increased certain allowance qualitative factors based on its assessment of the impact of the current pandemic on local, national, and global economic conditions as well as the perceived risks inherent in specific industries and credit characteristics during the first half of 2020. Based on this approach, the Corporation determined that a $0.5 million release of provision specifically related to the COVID-19 pandemic was appropriate in the fourth quarter of 2020. The total provision for loan losses for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $0.3 million, due to an increase in loan volume during the quarter. Net charge-offs for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $3.9 million, compared to $0.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. The allowance for loan losses was $20.9 million at December 31, 2020 compared to $23.5 million at December 31, 2019. The allowance for loan losses was 210.25% of non-performing loans at December 31, 2020 compared to 130.38% at December 31, 2019. The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans was 1.36% at December 31, 2020 compared to 1.79% at December 31, 2019. The ratio of the allowance for loan losses to total loans excluding PPP loans was 1.51% at December 31, 2020. The Corporation continues to closely monitor the loan portfolio for effects related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Changes in governmental policies during the pandemic placed stress on certain industries while other industries initially anticipated to be highly impacted by the pandemic demonstrated resilience. As a result, the Corporation re-evaluated various qualitative factors used to calculate the provision. The 2020 pandemic related provision was $4.5 million, of which $4.0 million remains part of the allowance at year end. In addition the Corporation charged off one large commercial mortgage and one participating interest in a commercial credit. In the fourth quarter of 2020, the Corporation sold and released reserves for three non-performing commercial loans. Under Section 4013 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the "CARES Act"), "Temporary Relief from Troubled Debt Restructurings" loans less than 30 days past due as of December 31, 2019 will be considered current for COVID-19 related modifications and therefore will not be treated as TDRs. On June 17, 2020 the New York legislature passed, and Governor Cuomo signed, new legislation which allows certain borrowers to extend the period of forbearance on a primary residence if financial hardship is demonstrated as a result of COVID-19. At its highest point as of May 31, 2020, total loan forbearances represented 15.77% of the Corporation's total loan portfolio. As of December 31, 2020, total loan forbearances decreased to 1.35% of the total loan portfolio. COVID-19 Loan Modifications Outstanding As Of September 30, 2020 December 31, 2020 Total Loan Total Loan # Clients Balance # Clients Balance Commercial31 $43.3 million 13 $19.8 millionRetail and Residential43 $2.5 million 17 $0.9 million The above reflects the uncertain economic situation whereby the initial response by customers prompted a quick reaction to the unknown potential impact of COVID-19 on their business. Subsequently, customers may have reassessed their financial position prior to finalization of a modification, either modifying deferral requests or withdrawing the request altogether. In some cases, customers continued to make payments on modified loans. Of these modifications, 100% were considered current prior to the forbearance and primarily reflect deferrals for 90 days. Balance Sheet Activity Total assets were $2.279 billion at December 31, 2020 compared to $1.788 billion at December 31, 2019, an increase of $491.6 million, or 27.5%. The increase can be mostly attributed to increases of $227.2 million in loans, net of deferred fees, $270.5 million in securities available for sale, at estimated fair value, $9.6 million in accrued interest receivable and other assets, and a decrease of $2.6 million in allowance for loan losses, offset by decreases of $17.6 million in interest- earning deposits in other financial institutions, $2.3 million in premises and equipment, and $1.0 million in loans held for sale. The increase in loans was due primarily to the growth of $206.5 million in commercial loans and $51.1 million in residential mortgages, offset by a decrease of $30.3 million in consumer loans. $150.9 million of the increase in loans related to the PPP. The increase in securities available for sale can be mostly attributed to purchases of $329.9 million and an increase in the value of the portfolio of $10.4 million due to the decreases in interest rates, offset by $67.4 million in maturities and paydowns. The decrease in interest earning deposits was due primarily to the increase in investment securities and loans during 2020. The increase in other assets was due primarily to an increase of $8.2 million in interest rate swap assets. Total liabilities were $2.080 billion at December 31, 2020 compared to $1.605 billion at December 31, 2019, an increase of $474.6 million, or 29.6%. The increase in total liabilities can primarily be attributed to increases of $465.6 million, or 29.6% in deposits, and $10.0 million in accrued interest payable and other liabilities, offset by a decrease of $0.8 million in operating lease liabilities. The increase in deposits was due primarily to increases of $100.4 million in consumer deposits, $230.4 million in commercial deposits, and $134.9 million in public deposits. The increase in deposits was partially attributed to the collection of stimulus checks and PPP loan disbursements. The increase in accrued interest payable and other liabilities was due primarily to an increase of $8.2 million in interest rate swap liabilities. The decrease in operating lease liabilities includes a $0.2 million decrease due to the termination of the lease of the now closed Owego, New York branch. Total shareholders’ equity was $199.7 million at December 31, 2020 compared to $182.6 million at December 31, 2019, an increase of $17.1 million, or 9.3%. The increase in retained earnings of $14.3 million was due primarily to net income of $19.3 million offset by $5.0 million in dividends declared. The increase in accumulated other comprehensive income of $8.2 million can mostly be attributed to an increase in the fair market value of the securities portfolio. Treasury stock increased $5.8 million primarily due to the Corporation's common stock repurchase program. As of December 31, 2020, all 250,000 shares have been repurchased at an average cost of $29.40 per share. The total equity to total assets ratio was 8.76% at December 31, 2020 compared to 10.22% at December 31, 2019. The tangible equity to tangible assets ratio was 7.87% at December 31, 2020 compared to 9.07% at December 31, 2019. Book value per share increased to $42.53 at December 31, 2020 from $37.35 at December 31, 2019. As of December 31, 2020, the Bank’s capital ratios were in excess of those required to be considered well-capitalized under the regulatory framework for prompt corrective action. Other Items The market value of total assets under management or administration in our Wealth Management Group was $2.091 billion at December 31, 2020, including $305.5 million of assets under management or administration for the Corporation, compared to $1.915 billion at December 31, 2019, including $289.7 million of assets under management or administration for the Corporation, an increase of $175.5 million, or 9.2%. The increase in total assets under management or administration can be mostly attributed to an increase in the market value of total assets. As previously announced on January 8, 2021, the Corporation announced that the Board of Directors approved a new stock repurchase program. Under the new repurchase program, the Corporation may repurchase up to 250,000 shares of its common stock, or approximately 5% of its then outstanding shares. The repurchase program permits shares to be repurchased in open market or privately negotiated transactions, through block trades, and pursuant to any trading plan that may be adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities and Exchange Commission. As of this press release, the Corporation has not initiated any repurchases under the new program. As disclosed in the Corporation's August 20, 2020 Current Report on Form 8-K, the Corporation consolidated two branches November 20, 2020. The Big Flats, New York branch at 437 Maple Street, Big Flats, NY, was consolidated into the nearby Arnot Road Office at 29 Arnot Road, Horseheads, NY. The Owego, New York branch located at 1054 State Route 17C, Owego, New York, was consolidated into the nearby Owego branch office at 203 Main Street, Owego, New York. Chemung Financial's COVID-19 Pandemic Update The Corporation remained flexible with its COVID-19 response, adapting weekly to new micro-cluster zone restrictions and spiking positivity rates throughout our footprint. This flexibility allowed us to ensure a healthy and safe work environment for our colleagues, clients and the communities we assist. At all times, social distancing, sanitizing and facial coverings were required and at certain times, access to branches was limited or restricted. When the need arose to temporarily close a branch, impacted customers were directed to adjacent branches when possible, and offices were immediately deep-cleaned to ensure a safe work environment when employees and customers returned to work. At the date of this press release 29 of our 30 offices are open with normal business hours. The Corporation further assisted its customer base as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) moved forward with its Forgiveness phase, with the Small Business Administration (SBA) beginning to approve forgiveness applications on October 2, 2020. The Corporation is participating in the latest round of PPP, and began accepting applications on January 19, 2021, receiving a total of 250 applications for a total of $37.0 million, as of the date of this press release. Management believes that the Corporation's liquidity position is strong. The Corporation uses a variety of resources to meet its liquidity needs. These include short term investments, cash flow from lending and investing activities, core- deposit growth and non-core funding sources, such as time deposits of $100,000 or more, FHLB advances, securities sold under agreements to repurchase, and other borrowings. As of December 31, 2020, the Corporation's cash and cash equivalents balance was $108.5 million. The Corporation also maintains an investment portfolio of securities available for sale, comprised primarily of mortgage-backed securities and municipal bonds. Although this portfolio generates interest income for the Corporation, it also serves as an available source of liquidity and capital if the need should arise. As of December 31, 2020, the Corporation's investment in securities available for sale was $554.6 million, $373.8 million of which was not pledged as collateral. Additionally, the Bank's unused borrowing capacity at the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York was $89.6 million, as of December 31, 2020. The Corporation did not experience excessive draws on available working capital lines of credit and home equity lines of credit during 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis, nor has the Corporation experienced any significant or unusual activity related to customer reaction to the COVID-19 crisis that would create stress on the Corporation's liquidity position. With respect to the Corporation's credit risk and lending activities, management has taken actions to identify and assess additional possible credit exposure due to the changing environment caused by the COVID-19 crisis based upon the industry types within our current loan portfolio. Lending risks, as mentioned, are being monitored by industry, based upon NAICS code, with specific attention being paid to those industries that may experience greater stress during this time. The COVID-19 crisis is expected to continue to impact the Corporation's financial results, as well as demand for its services and products during 2021. The short and long-term implications of the COVID-19 crisis, and related monetary and fiscal stimulus measures on the Corporation's future revenues, earnings results, allowance for loan losses, capital reserves, and liquidity are uncertain at this time.

Forward-Looking Statements This press release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act, and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The Corporation intends its forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements in this press release. All statements regarding the Corporation's expected financial position and operating results, the Corporation's business strategy, the Corporation's financial plans, forecasted demographic and economic trends relating to the Corporation's industry and similar matters are forward-looking statements. These statements can sometimes be identified by the Corporation's use of forward-looking words such as "may," "will," "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," or "intend." The Corporation cannot promise that its expectations in such forward-looking statements will turn out to be correct. The Corporation's actual results could be materially different from expectations because of various factors, including changes in economic conditions or interest rates, credit risk, difficulties in managing the Corporation’s growth, competition, changes in law or the regulatory environment, including the Dodd-Frank Act, and changes in general business and economic trends. As the result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the related adverse local and national economic consequences, the Company could be subject to any of the following additional risks, any of which could have a material, adverse effect on our business, financial condition, liquidity, and results of operations: demand for our products and services may decline, making it difficult to grow assets and income;if the economy is unable to substantially reopen, and high levels of unemployment continue for an extended period of time, loan delinquencies, problem assets, and foreclosures may increase, resulting in increased charges and reduced income;collateral for loans, especially real estate, may decline in value, which could cause loan losses to increase;our allowance for loan losses may have to be increased if borrowers experience financial difficulties beyond forbearance periods, which will adversely affect our net income;the net worth and liquidity of loan guarantors may decline, impairing their ability to honor commitments to us;as the result of the decline in the Federal Reserve Board’s target federal funds rate to near 0%, the yield on our assets may decline to a greater extent than the decline in our cost of interest-bearing liabilities, reducing our net interest margin and spread and reducing net income;a material decrease in net income over several quarters could result in a decrease in the rate of our quarterly cash dividend;our cyber security risks are increased as the result of an increase in the number of employees working remotely;we rely on third party vendors for certain services and the unavailability of a critical service due to the COVID-19 outbreak could have an adverse effect on us; andFDIC premiums may increase if the agency experiences additional resolution costs. Information concerning these and other factors can be found in the Corporation’s periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including the 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K. These filings are available publicly on the SEC's website at http://www.sec.gov, on the Corporation's website at http://www.chemungcanal.com or upon request from the Corporate Secretary at (607) 737-3746.

Chemung Financial Corporation GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations (Unaudited) The Corporation prepares its Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with GAAP. See the Corporation’s unaudited consolidated balance sheets and statements of income contained within this press release. That presentation provides the reader with an understanding of the Corporation’s results that can be tracked consistently from period-to-period and enables a comparison of the Corporation’s performance with other companies’ GAAP financial statements. In addition to analyzing the Corporation’s results on a reported basis, management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures, because it believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide information to investors about the underlying operational performance and trends of the Corporation and, therefore, facilitate a comparison of the Corporation with the performance of its competitors. Non-GAAP financial measures used by the Corporation may not be comparable to similarly named non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The SEC has adopted Regulation G, which applies to all public disclosures, including earnings releases, made by registered companies that contain “non-GAAP financial measures.” Under Regulation G, companies making public disclosures containing non-GAAP financial measures must also disclose, along with each non-GAAP financial measure, certain additional information, including a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the closest comparable GAAP financial measure and a statement of the Corporation’s reasons for utilizing the non-GAAP financial measure as part of its financial disclosures. The SEC has exempted from the definition of “non-GAAP financial measures” certain commonly used financial measures that are not based on GAAP. When these exempted measures are included in public disclosures, supplemental information is not required. The following measures used in this Report, which are commonly utilized by financial institutions, have not been specifically exempted by the SEC and may constitute "non-GAAP financial measures" within the meaning of the SEC's rules, although we are unable to state with certainty that the SEC would so regard them. Fully Taxable Equivalent Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin Net interest income is commonly presented on a tax-equivalent basis. That is, to the extent that some component of the institution's net interest income, which is presented on a before-tax basis, is exempt from taxation (e.g., is received by the institution as a result of its holdings of state or municipal obligations), an amount equal to the tax benefit derived from that component is added to the actual before-tax net interest income total. This adjustment is considered helpful in comparing one financial institution's net interest income to that of other institutions or in analyzing any institution’s net interest income trend line over time, to correct any analytical distortion that might otherwise arise from the fact that financial institutions vary widely in the proportions of their portfolios that are invested in tax-exempt securities, and that even a single institution may significantly alter over time the proportion of its own portfolio that is invested in tax-exempt obligations. Moreover, net interest income is itself a component of a second financial measure commonly used by financial institutions, net interest margin, which is the ratio of net interest income to average interest-earning assets. For purposes of this measure as well, fully taxable equivalent net interest income is generally used by financial institutions, as opposed to actual net interest income, again to provide a better basis of comparison from institution to institution and to better demonstrate a single institution’s performance over time. The Corporation follows these practices.

The adjusted efficiency ratio is a non-GAAP financial measure which represents the Corporation’s ability to turn resources into revenue and is calculated as non-interest expense divided by total revenue (fully taxable equivalent net interest income and non-interest income), adjusted for one-time occurrences and amortization. This measure is meaningful to the Corporation, as well as investors and analysts, in assessing the Corporation’s productivity measured by the amount of revenue generated for each dollar spent.
